Air Power / Crosman 1875
« on: November 17, 2017, 12:53:29 PM »
I am glad to see a dedicated forum devoted to air guns; thanks Capt'n! OK, I got this gun from Pyramyd Air a bit ago. It was on sale and I bit. Sad to say I haven't had the opportunity to test it out yet. If you check around, you can find a little better pricing.

Powder Horns & Flasks / A unique cap container
« on: October 19, 2017, 12:18:42 PM »
The last trade items I got from a friend included this cap container; it is his design. The container itself is a pronghorn antelope antler as you can see. The top is secured with pine pitch and the thong is braintan deer hide. Logo stands for Rocky Mountain Fur Company. Even came with some percussion caps in it!

Army Models / 1860 Signature Series
« on: July 28, 2017, 07:27:42 PM »
Has anyone here read the article in the latest Shooting Times magazine about the 3rd Gen. Colt? The author writes a glowing report about the gun, then states that it is regarded as an "authentic Colt". He bases this on the book by Dennis Adler who states that since Uberti used a proprietary Colt bluing method the gun is considered as authentic. Really? A 2 minute search would have given him the information needed. Colt will not letter the 3rd Generation guns, period!

Flintlock Muskets and Rifles / My nicest flinter
« on: July 26, 2017, 03:13:39 PM »
This rifle was built for me by a good friend. He also is very talented! The barrel is a Rice 58 caliber round groove, swamped , in the Beck profile. The lock is a Chambers left handed flint. Everything else was hand made. Butt plate, trigger guard, side plate,  stock, sights, coin silver inlays, ramrod tip, barrel keys, etc. I don't believe I have posted this here before.

Miscellaneous And Other Rifles / My Peabody rifle
« on: June 29, 2017, 03:41:20 PM »
This rifle doesn't fall into any of the categories listed, except here under "miscellaneous". This is a Peabody rifle I have had for a while now. I have some brass for it now; it was sold to me as a 45-50 caliber. It takes a necked down cartridge formed from 50 Basic.

This is the best condition of my Stevens Favorite mdl. rifles.

Navy Models / Pietta Colt London Model
« on: March 07, 2017, 02:42:32 PM »
A few years ago I bought several guns from the widow of a friend. One was a Pietta 36; got it home and put it away. I got to thinking about it a couple of days ago, remembering that it had a steel grip frame and trigger guard. Did some searching and found it is a London model. I didn't even know Pietta had made one!
Got it out today and took some quick photos.

Stevens / Stevens Mdl. 14
« on: March 05, 2017, 11:05:24 AM »
This is more commonly known as the Visible Loader. I bought this from a friend shortly before he passed away. He said it had accounted for many raccoons! This is one of the later models and has had the barrel shortened. As you can see, it has a globe sight (not original). It is also drilled and tapped for a tang sight that was not on the rifle.

Since the "no pictures, it never happened" rule is still in place here, I dug the old gal out for a photo shoot.

Stevens / Stevens repeating rifles
« on: February 28, 2017, 08:51:19 AM »
I have a Stevens model 425 rifle; this is a lever action (like Winchester, etc.) rifle in 30-30 Remington caliber. I got it from a friend who could not get ammo to load in to the rifle, thinking it was 30-30 Win.. After getting the rifle, I soon found out it was in the Remington caliber. It is well used but fully functional, and I do have a goodly supply of the 30-30 Rem ammo.
